YEEEHAWW! It’s Calgary Stampede Time!
One of my favourite times of the year is fast approaching! It is almost Stampede Season! Are you ready?! Everyone dresses with their best Cowboy Style and this year I wanted to add a little colour and a few punk vibes to change things up! So dust off your leather boots and cowboy hat and lets get the show on the road!

For those of you that don’t know what the Calgary Stampede which is held for 10 days in Calgary Alberta; is the largest outdoor show on Earth! It covers everything from unique trade shows to casinos to carnival rides to concerts and music festivals to incredible food and, of course, you can’t forget the main event… the Rodeo!

This year it is held from July 4th to July 15th. Competitors come from all over to compete in the Calgary Stampede. It is one of the highest paid rodeos in the tour and it holds a huge honour in rodeo circles! There is still lots of time to buy your tickets, so don’t fret, click here if you haven’t picked them up yet!

I galloped alongside the horses so that I could put together 10 awesome stampede ready outfits, one for each day of Stampede! This year, I wanted to incorporate colour as a much needed spark and revival of the Calgary Stampede Style!

For those who go regularly, we know that the Stampede is mostly jean shorts, jean jackets, jean shirts, etc! I started off with some of the classics and popped in a little camo green, sunshine yellow and ruby red to help spice it up.
